Bring in an eye for eye punishment for animal cruelty in the UK
- The british Prime Minister.
- United Kingdom
It's great that the government is finally getting around to increasing the punishment for animal cruelty, but the new proposed maximum punishments are still inadequate (the idea is that the maximum gaol sentence should be increased from 6 to 12 months, the maximum fine will go up from £5000 to $20,000 and people who are found guilty of animal cruelty would recieve life bans on keeping animals).
I am in favour of bringing in an eye for eye punishment for everyone who is guilty of animal cruelty. That way, the offender will be punished according to how much they made the animal suffer (which I would say is fair enough considering how little need there is for animal cruelty).
We, the undersigned, demand a direct eye for eye punishment for everyone who is guilty of animal cruelty, with the only exceptions involving people with severe mental problems which stop them from knowing what they are doing. Automatron defences should also provide a valid defence.
